Girls wrestlers compete at first pre-regional tournaments


XENIA — The first OHSAA pre-regional girls wrestling tournaments took place in advance of regionals beginning on Sunday.

The additional round was added by the OHSAA earlier this winter due to a higher than anticipated number of wrestlers competing during the second year of the sport being sponsored by the organization.

Two local wrestlers captured tournament titles. At the tournaments held at Greeneview, Lily Hendricks for the host Rams at 125 pounds and Bellbrook’s Jada Weiss at 155 were victorious in their divisions. Hendricks was the top-seed and pinned both of her opponents she face. Weiss as the two-seed defeated the top-seed in her division who was also a state qualifier last year.

The Rams had four wrestlers advance. Both Bellbrook and Xenia had one. Greeneview placed sixth place overall.

Fairborn had nine wrestlers qualify out of the Hamilton pre-regional and will have the third most wrestlers competing at the Harrison regional. The Skyhawks got second place in the 13-team field.

Greene County produced one state champion in the inaugural 2023 tournament.
